Public bodies and regulators are entrusted to make a wide range of decisions that impact the lives of many as these decisions are far-reaching and can have serious commercial, financial and personal consequences. It is therefore vital for those decision makers to act within the scope of the law in all decision-making. Judicial Review is the process whereby an affected individual requests that the court reviews the actions or decisions of a public body or regulator on the grounds that such actions/decisions are contrary to legislative or constitutional mandates.
Due to its depth of experience, the firm also represents a regulator and advises it concerning interpretation of the relevant legislation and protecting itself against spurious judicial review litigation.
